Classic Crimes of Fashion: Cher goes to the Oscars

Cher black feather hat oscars
Looking through the archive of Ye Olde Crimes of Fashion, it’s hard to pick just one outfit to represent the total fashion disaster that was Cher during the 80s. In fact, as we continue this short series of Classic Fashion Disasters, I reserve the right to come back to Cher, and re-visit some of her other fashion crimes. That’s another post for another day, though: for now, I’ve picked this photo of her at the 1986 Academy Awards, purely because it’s almost Halloween, and it seems appropriate. Of course, it wasn’t Halloween when Cher wore this, but all the same, if you’re looking for some costume inspiration, look no further…

    It’s Cher. I don’t think she can make fashion faux pas, because… it’s Cher.

  • […] back then, we were treated to such craziness as Cher at the Oscars.  And that was so much more entertaining than the shows themselves.  Now everyone has designers […]
